I believe we must rebuild our city to be stronger than before the pandemic — but only if we work together to address social inequities and support our small businesses through this crisis.

What are your top priorities?

  • Expanding Recreation Subsidy Program for community centres
  • Affordable housing crisis
  • Collect and analyze race-based data and create an anti-racism policy
